[03OCT15] Read This if you have trouble in Prepar3D v3 (updated)

Recommended Posts

***FIXED***

 

1. Uninstalled PMDG, followed by Simconnect. Reinstalled Simconnect (w/ SP1 & 2). Prepar3d worked.

2. Reinstalled PMDG. Prepar3d + PMDG worked.

3. Rebooted. Prepar3d crashed as before. Uninstall PMDG. Prepar3d worked. Reinstalled PMDG. Prepar3d + PMDG works until rebooted.

4. Reinstalled PMDG. Prepar3d + PMDG worked. This time left Baron as default aircraft. Still works after reboot.

 

Summary: Even with setup scenario screen left on, the default aircraft cannot be PMDG. Doing so causes crash.

This is mentioned in the Intro Manual, as well. Just for future reference, we do actually put very important and helpful information in there.

I have just purchased the 737 NGX for P3D (v3.1).

 

Despite following the four steps outlined I only have about a 1/4 of the VC controls clickable. I had the migration tool installed for some older addons and have since removed it but still get the same issue.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thank

Have you been able to resolve the issue meanwhile? Or does anyone else have experience with using a migration tool (for sceneries) and PMDG planes in P3Dv3?

 

Just asking because I just recently switched to P3Dv3 and I am planning on using the EMT tool for installing Tongass Fjords X while I'm also about to buy the P3D versions of the NGX and 777...

 

 

Are you using a Migration Tool?

 

Not saying you used it on our 777, but its presence alone will cause issues.

 

Kyle, are these problems somehow resolvable (without uninstalling everything) or is it generally not possible to use a migration tool before or after installing a PMDG product in P3Dv3?

 

Thanks a lot and best regards

Olli

Removing the tool usually resolves things without any other action.

Hi:

 

After a lot of work for my and help from thecnichal support. Now everything is working relatively well (I'm not satisfied with the performance) . Now I find that I am almost forced to change my P3D3 v2.1 version to the new version 3.1. My big question is whether the two versions can coexist togheter  ?. The idea is to migrate step by step. I have installed the PMDG 737 and 777 with Proatc/x and Sky Active programs. Thankyou for comments.

They can, but it's not recommended.

Well,  then by the experience you have my next question is if you beleve that I can migrate to version 3.1 without any problems ? . I do not like having to go through the same way as the previous version.

 

Thank you.

From our perspective, it's easy: uninstall, upgrade, reinstall. If you're looking for support for migrating between P3D versions from any other perspective, you will have to discuss that with LM, or in the appropriate subforum elsewhere on AVSIM: http://www.avsim.com/forum/436-the-prepar3d-forum/

Ok gang, maybe we can fix this little issue I'm having with 98% of the panels being non-clickable on any PMDG P3Dv3 airframe (777 or 737). This issue doesn't affect my FSX PMDG airframes (777, J41, 737, 747, -8i, LCF, MD11). Everything was working beautifully earlier today. During my last flight FSUIPC went haywire talking about another instance running, which there isn't. I thought it might have something to do with the last program I installed which was SODE (scenery needs this for KLIAv2 FSX). I uninstalled it (SODE) and still can't do anything on the overhead but turn on landing lights. I have just spent the last month rebuilding my computer (major upgrade), and reinstalling FSX, and P3D with their respective addons. I can give a list of what I have installed if needed. I have followed the advice of the SimConnect fix but no dice. I have all 4 showing, in the installed pgm list. I really don't want to have to start over, just looking at the list of addon pgms is starting to make me teary eyed at the thought. This is the first time I have had this issue. Any suggestions? Let me know if there is any information you need?

 

P.S. I didn't want to start a new topic as this was recent and has the same issues I am having. I will start a new one if the forum gods deem necessary.  :smile:

Should have, but this will do...

 

Explain your process for getting your sim set up. Step by step in excruciating detail. If you eat 1/3 of a bagel while I loads, I want to know about it.

No problem Kyle. I just hate seeing multiple forum topics on the same subject. Sorry about this though. Ok here we go:

It is at this point that my PMDG P3D products suffered the landing lights only issue, nothing else works on the overheads, nothing works on the MCP, and nothing but the throttles, flaps, ands spoliers on the lower panels. No other planes are affected.

haha - I'm sorry. I should have been more specific in my request for your specifics:

 

Step by step: how do you launch and start a flight in P3D?

ok Kyle here is an update, I have uninstalled the 777 and the 737 in P3D. I have reinstalled the 737 and it works. Reinstalled the expansion 600/700 and its back. Reinstalled the 777 and no joy there as well.  :mad: Just went back and checked the 737 and nothing works now.

 

LMAO, oops. My bad, usually when you guys want details on something you want everything. :smile:  I launch the sim as an admin and it goes to the default popup where you pick a flight (airframe, airport, weather). I don't mess with that as it causes problems when you set a particular airport/airframe for start up in the config.

 

***UPDATE***

I have decided to remove everything and start over. FSX has started the same, something that was installed went awary, and I don't know what it is. As of now none of my PMDG stuff works. I will keep you posted if I find out what the culprit is.

Hi Guys

 

Some great info in this post. And I'd love to get my PMDG aircraft up and flying on P3D but I cant get past the load menu on P3D. It just shuts down, anyone know a quick fix for this issue. I just uninstalled P3D v3 and went back to flying on FSX. I've read every forum update in the web I think, and nothing helps. no support for LM.

 

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
